From the author of the stunning debut novel The Girl with Glass Feet comes another magical story of love, discovery, and nature

When Elsa's father is killed in a tornado, all she wants is to escape—from New York, her job, her boyfriend—to somewhere new, anonymous, set apart. For some years she has been haunted by a sight once seen from an airplane: a tiny, isolated settlement called Thunderstown. Thunderstown has received many a pilgrim, and young Elsa becomes its latest, drawn to this weather-ravaged backwater, this place rendered otherworldly by the superstitions of its denizens. In Thunderstown, they say, the weather can come to life, and when Elsa meets Finn Munro, an outcast living in the mountains above the town, she wonders whether she has witnessed just that. For Finn has an incredible secret: he has a thunderstorm inside of him. Not everyone in town wants happiness for Elsa and Finn. As events turn against them, can they weather the tempest—can they survive at all? This work of lyrical, mercurial magic and imagination is a modern-day fable about the elements of love.

About the Author:

Ali Shaw's first novel, the critically acclaimed The Girl with Glass Feet, won the Desmond Elliot Prize, was shortlisted for the Costa First Book Award and the Crawford Award, and was an IndieNext pick.

Review:

The Man Who Rained is delicately crafted... Its story haunting and thoroughly, charmingly different -- Alison Flood * Sunday Times * The most compelling thing about this book... is not the mere plot but Shaw's striking facility with the language... this is such an imaginative novel, written with such attention to words, and such a sense of wonder, that those who savour such skills will find themselves thoroughly transported. * Observer *
